BEDM Challenge: Day 30 Pure Joy

Day 30's writing prompt:

"React to this term: Letting Go"

 The theme of "letting go" has been really powerful in my life lately and so when I saw today's writing prompt I was beyond excited to write about it!

I won't be long-winded so here is what I react to "letting go". 

Joy. Pure unadulterated J-O-Y.

I had to cut a lot of things out that were holding back from living my happiest life and when I did I was amazed at what I was able to do, who I was able to BECOME. Negative friendships, old mindsets, fear of success, sub-par eating habits, I let it go and I have never felt such freedom.

I guess freedom would be another word besides joy that I would use to react to "letting go" because it seemed that when I removed my old parameters and let myself believe in my dreams that I have become my most optimistic.

Whatever is in your life that is holding you back get rid of it. I know that it can be hard, or you might be scared of hurting someone's feelings, but iron sharpens iron (Prov 27:17) and in order to improve yourself you need new challenges and the freedom to believe that you can achieve your goals. 

Have you ever let anything go that you were afraid of? How did you do it and did you notice a change for the better in your life?


  1. Such a great post and I totally agree. Don't let things hold you back.


  2. Great post. Freedom to try new things after letting go of the old.

  3. When we trust God and let go of things that hinder us in our walk with him we will find joy, peace, and freedom. Love the verse too. Thanks for visiting my blog today.
